Does your garden have a case of the ‘blahs’?
One of the most frequent desires for homeowners that I meet with is more colorful interest for their outdoor spaces. One of the easiest ways to add a splash of color to the garden is introducing brightly colored pots.
There are some situations where adding color using flowering plants is difficult, particularly when there is a lot of shade as most plants won’t bloom in heavy shade.
My favorite solution for that problem is to plant a shade-loving succulent in a colorful pot such as elephant’s food (Portulacaria afra).
Adding a color element to a shady entry is just one of the many ways to use vibrant pots to add colorful interest year round. In my latest Houzz article, I share a number of ways how you can utilize pots as a decorative element to the garden.
